Pros

  • Great way to summon a powerful monster.
  • Being a Quick-play spell gives you lots of timings to activate this card.

Cons

  • Requires a Hero monster on the field to activate, otherwise a dead card in your hand.
  • A Hero can only change into a Masked Hero of the same attribute.

Tips

Anki OTK

(This OTK is only possible because of a bug that doesn't half Anki's attack when he attacks directly with his effect and Titan Showdown is active.)
Use Cosmic Cyclone to banish a spell/trap card and reduce your LP to make Titan Showdown active, then used masked change to special summon Masked HERO - Anki. Anki is able to attack your opponent directly and because of Titan Showdown he will deal 5600 damage. If your opponent does not control any spell/trap card for you to use Cosmic Cyclone on, you can turn on self-chain. First activate Masked Change on your HERO and then use Cosmic Cyclone on Masked Change, you will still be able to summon Anki with your LP reduced for Titan Showdown.

Extra attacks

You can use Masked Change on an Extra deck Masked Hero you control to special summon another copy of himself from the Extra deck. Use this during the battle phase to gain extra attacks. Masked Hero Anki can do this most efficiently. Attack with your DARK Hero monster, activate Masked Change to special summon Masked Hero Anki and then let Anki destroy a monster. Anki will let you search a Masked Change from your deck, which you can use on him to special summon another Anki ready to attack. Repeat till your opponent runs out of monster.

Masked Hero

Here is a list of masked hero monsters that can be summoned with Masked Change.

Multiple monsters

Drilldark lets you special summon another monster when it's summoned, this can let you use Mask Change on one of them without leaving your vulnerable to cards like Enemy Controller. Use Drilldark's effect to special summon Destiny HERO - Celestial so you can use its effect when it's in the graveyard. Vyon can also be pretty good since you can use its effect to send Destiny HERO - Malicious from your deck to the grave, then activate it from the grave to special summon another Malicious from your deck, which thins your deck as well as letting you use Mask Change using your deck as a resource.

Return from the graveyard

Decider's effect lets you return a Destiny HERO monster from your grave at the end of the turn. This can let you use Mask Change on him after he attacks to return Decider back to your hand at the end of your turn.

Can you stop this from going through if you destroy the monster with a spell/trap during the chain?

Yes, the targeted monster must be sent to the gy by this card's effect to resolve, if you chain ballista, Raigeki, karma, etc. your opponent doesn't get to summon anything.

If you flip the monster face down or you use enemy controller the card still resolves and your opponent gets to summon a monster

Only hero players believe that it is fair. This card is indeed broken.

- You can only activate 1 "Mask Change" per turn. This errata will make it fair.

The fact that is says once per turn instantly makes it way more balanced.

This card or anki should be limited to 2, along with celestia.
kbeezy
The fact that this card is NOT limited, BUT silent sword slash is limited is absolute HORSE URINE. sick of this nonsense

What is the point of limiting it?
There is also a card that allows you to play it up to 3 times from the graveyard.

They won't semi-limit this card because it will affect other Masked Heroes too, especially considering we'll have Dian in main/mini box in the future.

If they would limit something from the Anki deck, it will be either Decider/Drilldark, or Anki itself.

this should work only ONCE PER TURN ... summoning the same monster up to 3 times and being able to attack with him every time in the same turn is just ridiculous

You know it's easy to counter. Masked-Heros aren't that great anymore ...

So? Every deck has counters. Doesn’t mean it’s not broken. This deck is absolute OP 🔥 and it always has been. It doesn’t need limiting it needs an all out ruling change.

They'll never change a card text for DL (unless it has to do with Main Phase 2 like with Emerald Turtle). If they made Anki limited to 1, this deck won't be able to OTK.

Limit this card, Konami.

No, because it will 🔥 any other Masked Hero deck...

Anki semi-limited to 2 would solve the problem. If you can deal with the 1st Anki then you're guaranteed safe from OTK and you'll have a bigger chance to make a comeback

Limiting this card is fine as long as they give us Mask Change II in exchange.

Would my Anki be destroyed if I chained Mask Change to Widespread Ruin? For example, I have 2 monsters then my opponent use Widespread then I chained Mask Change.
<< Anonymous
Anonymous Reply
Yes, as Widespread Ruin doesn't target.
<< Anonymous

The fact it doesn't target doesn't in itself make it go after something else. A card like Floodgate Trap Hole doesn't target, either, and only goes after a specific card. But in this case, Widespread Ruin doesn't even "pick" until it resolves. Aside from them requiring an Attack Position monster to legally activate it, what they have at that time has no bearing on what will be destroyed.

Believe me when I say:
They will never limit this one.

Masked Heroes left the current meta the way it's meant to be: Being overpowered lol

Limitation is never good.

Maybe he is talking to himself?
I personally think the decks will be good but not meta tbh, the thing is that they need their set...
Use Oracle instead of #2
